‘Oak Bay democracy can still be clean, easy and free’, says Gregory Hartnell; ‘Rockland Outsider’ didn’t spend a cent on paperless sign-free Campaign for Oak Bay Liberty

I am pleased to report something that I am sure that all my cousins the Turnbulls, and all my long-dead Glaswegian ancestors on my mother’s side, would certainly appreciate.

I didn’t spend a red cent, not one devalued Canadian penny, not one single unit of the Bankster’s fiat currency in spreading the bulletproof ideas of Liberty to the good people of Oak Bay in last week’s election.

I analysed the basics of Dr. Ron Paul’s erudition and wisdom, integrating the most applicable economic principles into my own non partisan ten point plan for Oak Bay economic recovery, incorporating Austrian School of Economics ideas as I understand them from studying Dr. Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty.

So it is quite possible to come from Victoria with a commendation and a warning, to stand for election in a neighbouring jurisdiction, to spread timeless revolutionary anti-corporatist ideas, to not spend a cent, and to have about 569 souls vote for those sorts of pro-Life, pro-Liberty, pro low tax ideas.

Thanks to all my Pro-Life, Pro-Liberty, Pro-Peace, Pro-Market, Pro-Sound Money Concerned Citizens and other new friends in Oak Bay.

Remember folks, this campaign was essentially a one man operation, run by face to face contact with Oak Bay residents, telephone calls, emails and blogs.

Imagine what you can do with a gang of peaceful Liberty revolutionaries who are more computer savvy than your humble servant, and not hung up on Scottish frugality.

I didn’t use any so-called social media at all.

No facebook ‘friends’, no myspace, no linkedin, no twittering…

NADA de estas cosas estupidas!

MUCHAS GRACIAS, AMIGOS!

Thomas E. Woods Jr. on how poor are prospering: It is by evading the state’s alleged help that the most vulnerable have managed to eke out tolerable livings for themselves.’ @ tomwoods.com

November18th

How the Poor Are Prospering by Ignoring the State

This is one of the most interesting and startling articles I have read in a long time.

In the usual version of events, the poor are helpless victims of capitalist exploitation, and only the wise intervention of the state can improve their condition.

The growth of what experts call System D, the unofficial economy that operates outside the state’s arena of taxation and regulation, suggests that the reality is quite different.

It is by evading the state’s alleged help that the most vulnerable have managed to eke out tolerable livings for themselves.

HARTNELL’S OAK BAY TAX LIBERTY PLAN: “I will honour existing contracts between Oak Bay and the unions, but will not raise residential or commercial property taxes in the first year of the term, nor will I raise the tax rate at the expense of the residential sector, but will maintain a fair balance in the ratio between the two sectors.” Point #2 of ‘Rockland Outsider’ Gregory Hartnell’s 10 point Oak Bay Campaign for Tax Liberty

Gregory Hartnell’s new 10 point, 3 year Oak Bay Recovery Plan: independent non-partisan fiscal conservative PRO-LIFE candidate for Oak Bay Council wants to shrink borrowing, government, hiring, spending, residential and commercial property taxes.

I am pleased to announce that I am standing as an independent non-partisan candidate for Oak Bay Council in the November 19 election.
SHEILA MARY MARGARET HARTNELL (NEE TURNBULL)
HOLDING GREGORY PAUL HARTNELL
I was born in Victoria in Saint Joseph’s Hospital on October 24, 1952, am a Canadian citizen, have no party membership, nor membership in any Globalist organizations, and have lived in Greater Victoria most of my life, including addresses on Milton, Yale, Hampshire and Beach Drive in beautiful Oak Bay.
Inspired by Dr. Ron Paul, American Presidential Candidate for 2012, I am primarily a small government advocate, emphasizing the need for radically lower residential and commercial property taxes.
Here is my 10 point plan of Tax Liberty, Economic Recovery and Restoration of Accountability for Oak Bay:
1. I will not vote to give myself a raise in salary in the three year term, but will donate the entirety of my three year salary to Victoria Hospice.
2. I will honour existing contracts between Oak Bay and the unions, but will not raise residential or commercial property taxes in the first year of the term, nor will I raise the tax rate at the expense of the residential sector, but will maintain a fair balance in the ratio between the two sectors.
3. I will look at the best ways to repeat the contract-honouring, tax-cutting restraint programme each subsequent year of the term, guided by principles of prudent fiscal justice for the greater good of the economy of Oak Bay, not pandering to special interest groups of the right or the left.
4. I am opposed to the grandiose sewage and LRT plans of the non-elected, non-accountable CRD; I favour free bus passes for the disabled, homeless and poor, and look for science-based marine-based sewage and storm drain solutions as advocated by Responsible Sewage Treatment Victoria.
5. I will not vote for any new hiring, and will not vote to expand any bureaucratic spending in any department of Oak Bay, including police, in the three year term.
6. I will stop all salary raises for management for the whole three year term, and will actually work to reduce their present salaries.
7. I am in favour of a legally binding ‘chem trail’ geo-engineering ban in Oak Bay, leading to a similar ban with legal force in the whole CRD.
8. I support the current Council in their opposition to so-called ‘smart meters’, will vote to stop further installation of these radiation-emitting devices in Oak Bay, favouring instead removal of wireless meters, and installation of non-radiating wired meters, if there is no other way to avoid the smart grid mania.
9. I favour a four storey height restriction for all new building proposals, including the controversial Garry Oak Village proposal of Baptist Housing.
10. All development approvals in Oak Bay should be subject to a prudent development approval process, including bona fide loan guarantees to protect the District of Oak Bay from improperly financed applications, to avoid a repeat of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel fiasco.

Although I am still President of the Concerned Citizens’ Coalition, the CCC does not formally endorse my campaign, which is strictly independent.
I am a completely independent candidate, and receive no support from any bank, corporation, political party, union, or any other electors’ organization of any kind.

Conservatives call on province to end ‘ill-advised’ smart meter program – Cummins warns Liberals intend to introduce time-of-use billing by John O’Connor – Merritt News – November 17, 2011

‘STUPID METER’ UPDATE: NOVEMBER 18, 2011
Please sign the petition if you have yet to do so, and pass it to as many friends as you can. We can make it!!

SMART THIS B.C. HYDRO!

OCCUPY SMART METERS!

https://cstorg.wufoo.com/forms/q7x3s5/

GOAL – 10,000 by NO-vember 22

1) Good news from Kamloops:
We now know of at least 2 people who have gotten their meter reversed back to digital.
The second was a cancer survivor
When her meter went in she felt like she was back in chemo
, vomitting, nausea… all the rest.

The day after she complained hydro came and replaced!

so the ‘too late i already got one’ people you can tell them this! remember this is how it started in California. These are the things that happen, the intangibles put your energy somewhere and this is what can be.
2) 
The Society of Environmental Journalists is a terrific journalist organization. (My former boss was one of the founders.) This article provides up-to-date information about the smart meter issue in the United States. I highly recommend you share this link with your media connections to encourage them to write about smart meters.
